This Adventure Sailing holiday isn’t just a sailing trip or adventure package. We designed this holiday for those who love being active outdoors, who admire art and history and appreciate ancient architecture and local tradition. Daily activities are rather short and not too demanding, leaving plenty of time to enjoy the sun while sailing between Croatian renowned islands. Dubrovnik, the Elaphiti shorelines, Mljet, Korcula, and Hvar Islands are rich in history and natural variety – cliffs, caves, coves, rocks, beaches, and pine forests. We will explore them while sailing on a yacht, sea kayaking, cycling, stand up paddling, swimming, snorkeling and on foot.
Our experienced local guides and skippers will avoid overcrowded destinations ensuring you get the most authentic experience. We will be mooring in quiet places and have the opportunity to dine with local families in their homes and enjoy good food and excellent wine. Our tour will start in Stari Grad on the Island of Hvar, a city which is easily accessible from Split. Friendly dolphins or tuna that are often seen in the area often escort our yachts. The sea is blue, clear, warm and friendly.
